Question about Brother DCP-350C InkJet Printer
Hi matt651, I had the same problem with the DCP-350. As soon as one of the colour cartidges was empty, which happened frequently due to the high ink loss during the cleaning process, the machine stopped working, even when I only wanted to print using black. This is how i worked around the problem using a piece of grey card stock: The tanks have a small clear window that lets you see the ink in the cartridge. This window also triggers a photocell which sits in a little black fork at the back of each of the printer's ink cartridge slots. When the ink levels are up, the cell is blocked, thereby indicating a full cartridge. When the ink level in the cartridge drops below the photocell, the cell switches over, indicating an empty cartridge. So in order to simulate a full ink catridge I removed the offending empty one and instead slipped a piece of cardboard into its slot, thereby fooling the photocell. And hey presto, when I switched the printer back on, all ink cartridges thus manipulated were shown as being "full" and I could continue printing.
Kind regards, Rog

Hi, the printer is built to print with ALL the components, so all the cartridges (Black, Cyan, Magenta and Yellow) if you don't have one of those, the machine won't work. so buy all of them and then you can print.
